"That begs the question: Why should you trust a VPN that promises to protect your privacy more than your internet provider? The answer is that you can't, and you shouldn't." https://t.co/XDi5QaATQH

If you're using Tor Browser on Windows and having issues watching YouTube videos after the last update, we're working on a fix. You can wait for a new Tor Browser update, or you can change one line configuration to fix. Check the update on the blog post: https://t.co/YMWjEFrsim

Among the 33 interviewees in Cameroon, Nigeria, Uganda, and Zimbabwe, about half (17) had 2 or more circumvention tools on their devices. Those who had more than one tool installed on their devices switched from one tool to another depending on which particular tool worked best.

The research was conducted between 2019-2020, and answers three questions: 1) What are the tools used during Internet censorship events in Africa? 2) How and why are they used? 3) What are the usability challenges encountered by users of these tools?
